barrier-of-entry: make ./bin/cassandra -f work out of the box by changing default cassandra.yaml
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: CASSANDRA-3570
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-3570
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Peter Schuller
            Assignee: Peter Schuller
            Priority: Trivial


This is probably going to be controversial. But how about the attached simple patch to just
have ./db exist, and then have Cassandra configured to use that by default? This makes it
a lot easier for people to just run Cassandra out of the working copy, whether you are a developer
or a user who wants to apply a patch when being assisted by a Cassandra developer.

A real deployment with packaging should properly override these paths anyway, and the default
/var/lib stuff is pretty useless. Even if you are root on the machine, who it is much cleaner
to just run self-contained.

Yes, I am aware that you can over-ride the configuration but honestly, that's just painful.
Especially when switching between various versions of Cassandra.
